Colleges give budget pitches, capitol grounds use hearing opens

This morning, the House State Affairs Committee is holding a public hearing on proposed new rules for use of the Capitol grounds, including for gatherings and protests; the Senate State Affairs Committee earlier approved the rules but rejected some of their main portions, with limits on time and place of events and exhibits and on sound amplification. Also this morning, Education Week hearings continue in the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee, where Lewis-Clark State College is up first for its budget hearing, followed by the College of Western Idaho, College of Southern Idaho and North Idaho College.

J. Anthony Fernandez, LCSC president, told JFAC, “We have students from all over the state and across the nation.” LCSC has 4,525 students in total head count, a 25 percent increase from fall of 2007.
